John Broome/Gil Kane/Joe GiellaGreen Lantern Omnibus Vol 1 (hardcover) ... Book
DC Comics, 2010. New Copy ... $22.99 75.00
One of the greatest runs of any hero of the silver age of comics – presented here in a lavish volume that collects the first 21 issues of Green Lantern, plus his initial three appearances in Showcase! Green Lantern really helped redefine the role of the superhero in the science age – thanks to very smart, snappy, imaginative writing from John Broome – who'd penned plenty of science fiction before coming to comics – and thanks also to amazing artwork from Gil Kane, who's at the height of his powers on these early issues! The team is incredible – one of those DC Comics unstoppable powers – and their run here is a nonstop stream of cool, creative stories that still hold up strongly all these many years later. Most inks are by Joe Giella, some are by Murphy Anderson – and the book is full color, very heavy 636 pages, and even reproduces all of those great covers from the 60s! Book

Chamber Of ChillsChamber Of Chills Vol 4 – November 1953 to December 1954 – Issues 20-26 (slip-cased hardcover) ... Book
PS Artbooks (UK), 1953/1954. New Copy ... $11.99 69.99
One of the amazing horror comics published by Harvey Comics in the pre-code years of the early 50s – and a publication that was noted for its wealth of creepy stories and equally chilling images! Harvey may have been the home to Casper the ghost, but on the horror tip they were something else entirely – publisher of some of the most gruesome material in the years before comics got cleaned up in the mid 50s – with some of the best artists as well! Some of these stories are a clear attempt to copy the more famous style of EC Comics, but the Chamber Of Chills material also has a charm that's all its own – a rough approach to stories, which often leads to wonderfully lurid artwork – handled in this volume by Bob Powell, Manny Stallman, John Giunta, Howard Nostrand, Lee Elias, Jack Sparling, and others – in stories that include "Dust Unto Dust", "Invasion", "Grave's End", "I Vampire", "Grim Years", "Credit & Loss", and more. 288 pages, full color, and hardcover.

Mick HoughtonBecoming Elektra – The True Story Of Jac Holzman's Visionary Record Label ... Book
Jawbone, 2010. New Copy ... $9.99 29.95
A wonderfully detailed story of one of the coolest record labels ever – a book that really gets at the huge range of folk, blues, psych, and other wonderful sounds issued by Elektra Records! The tome is massive – big enough to feature a lot of full color pictures, but with a much stronger emphasis on text than usual for this sort of volume – with an especially deep look into the early days of Zac Holzman, and his initial love of pre-rock modes before the bigger shift to more popular Elektra modes of the late 60s. The book is over 300 pages, and is past the halfway mark before The Doors even come into the picture – which really gives you an idea of the kind of detail involved, The book also features a full Elektra discography in the back – at least until the point at which Holzman left the label – and the whole thing's honestly one of the best accounts of a label's formation we've ever read. 304 pages, oversized, with some color images.
